Eye Q: Heavy Rock & Revolution in 1970s Zimbabwe

Now-Again — August 4, 2021 | Comments Off on Eye Q: Heavy Rock & Revolution in 1970s Zimbabwe

Just as the hippie era came to an end in America, a second 60s was beginning: in what is now Zimbabwe, young people created a rock and roll counterculture that drew inspiration from hippie ideals and the sounds of Hendrix and Deep Purple. The kids in the scene called their music “heavy,” because they could feel its impact, and it resonated from Zambia to Nigeria.

Eye Q is one of the greatest bands of the scene. Their collection Please the Nation is a 2/LP set, the latest release of Now Again Reserve.
